Supernatural fans, rejoice! It looks like the Winchesters are here to stay for quite some time.
During the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Thursday (Aug. 11), CW President Mark Pedowitz revealed that even though Supernatural is heading into season 12 (it has already been picked up for season 13), there’s no end in sight for one of the network’s longest standing series.
“If the ratings hold, the show could outlast my tenure in this chair,” said Pedowitz at the event according to TV Line.
On the subject of Supernatural, Pedowitz also shed some light on the series’ proposed spinoff, Bloodlines. For those of you who need a bit of a refresher, Bloodlines was a backdoor pilot that would have built off of episode 20 from season 9. If the series had been picked up, it would have revolved around hunters and monsters going head to head in Chicago.
Bloodlines ultimately never came to fruition, but at TCA, Pedowitz said that The CW hasn’t completely ruled out greenlightling the series in the future.
“It’s still a priority,” said Pedowitz of the backdoor pilot. “It just hasn’t happened.”
As cool as it would be to explore the world of monsters and hunters in Chicago, for now, we’ll settle for another fantastic season of Supernatural.
Supernatural season 12 premieres on The CW Thursday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m.
